I have installed on user laptop VPN, the regular Microsoft VPN.
I have configured the necessary things, such RSA on the TOP. disabled network services. modified the tcpip Bind on the registry.  I have done this under Administrator account. After I have restart the PC, I have logged as user and have check it if everything is oke. After that I  used an separated DSL line to test the VPN  and have logged again and have checked the options use dialup connections.  I have entered the user  username and  password on  the domain and choose for the options use dialup connections,  during the logging process suddenly I got the message : Make sure your User name and domain are correct. The username and password are correct. Because when I connect the laptop to company network i can logging with his username and password account, and his profile are loading as Roaming. But when I use the DSL connections  and use the VPN dialup connection during the logging I still getting the message : Make sure your User name and domain are correct.. I have noticed also , that I cant logging to the domain without to connect to the network, usually you should logging to the domain even without network connections. I though the should be probably cashing problem that why I have logged to network company with admin account and have changed his profile to local , but without result. I still getting this message.

Any ideas ?

When you are prompted, what format are you using for the username and password? I would recommend trying DomainName\Username when logging in. I realize this is not a highly technical response, but sometimes it's the simple things...

But Can you explain what makes the differnce, because other user who use also VPN , they just use the regular format username without domainname/username and they are able to login with VPN ?
what is the cause ?

Very welcome. :)

Are there differences in either the user rights between the two users, or group memberships? Are both machines at the same Operating System / Service Pack levels?

Is the DefaultDomainName entry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon identical in both machines?
